This is a very different tea indeed and was created when a Kyoto Merchant experimented with roasting to extend the shelf life of his green leaves. The heat from the roasting triggers chemical changes in the leaves, causing Hojicha Tea to have a sweet, slightly caramel-like aroma. The roasting process is also responsible for the tea's characteristic reddish-brown colour.

Brewing Hints: Brew with boiling water for 30 - 90 seconds

Leaf: Toasty brown leaves with a sweet, biscuity smell

Origin: Kyoto, Japan
